The West African Examination Council (WAEC) said that it has concluded plans to make its certificates available to candidates of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) immediately after their results are released.
The move is coming a few days after the examination body announced plans to launch a digital certificate platform.
WAEC’s Head of National Office, Patrick Areghan, disclosed this on Tuesday at a luncheon organized by the exam body in Lagos.
He noted that the digital certificate platform would be launched on Thursday, October 20, 2022, adding that the process would initially apply to those who wrote the exams between 1999 and till date. Candidates who sat for their exams during the preceding years would be considered much later.
WAEC described the initiative as a mobile and web-based application that has powerful features. It was designed to help candidates, individuals, and institutions/organizations access, share, request, confirm certificates and recover forgotten WAEC candidates’ examination numbers.
The WAEC Digital Certificate Platform is available online via www.waec.org. The mobile application can be downloaded on Android and iOS app stores.
